Praline Chocolate: Where did it come from?

praline chocolate

Rich, nutty and sweet, the French praline is a much-loved treat enjoyed by chocolate enthusiasts.

The story of this sweet creation goes back to the 17th century. The first version of the praline did not incorporate chocolate and was originally a whole nut coated in caramelised sugar.

Although the humble praline gained a lot of popularity, it lacked the rich flavours we know today. However, the second version of the praline was created from a culinary accident. A French chef accidentally added crushed nuts to a boiling pot of sugar and butter, melting this into a rich palate of flavours. 

The chef soon refined this accidental recipe. He turned his concoction into a fine paste, using it as a filling for chocolates to create the French praline we know today.
